Description

How do honeybees find their way home? Why is Venus so hot? How can you measure the speed of the wind? What makes a sound loud or soft? Discover the awesome answers to these and other fascinating mysteries in biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, and astronomy. Just try these 201 fun, safe, low-cost experiments at home or in the classroom. You'll look through a drop of water to find out how a magnifying lens works. Using a Styrofoam ball, a pencil, and a lamp, you'll learn why the Moon appears and disappears. With just a jar and some ice cubes, you can demonstrate how rain is formed. Each experiment includes an illustration and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. 

This treasury of science experiments is designed to show children that science is more than a list of facts — it is fun! VanCleave guides kids through the steps necessary to successfully complete an experiment, teaching them the best method of solving problems and discovering answers. The 201 short experiments cover five different fields — astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science and physics.
